Monkey Mou Designs Review & Giveaway





I have posted many Etsy features showcasing beautiful hand sewn clothing, so when the opportunity arose to feature something a little different and unique, I couldn't pass up the chance.

I'm excited to introduce you to the lovely Andrea from MonkeyMou Designs.  
Andrea custom paints shoes for boys and girls for all ages.  She has many fabulous styles of shoes and painted designs in her shop that you must check out.  The ideas are endless, so if you have something in particular in mind, she is happy to work with you.

A little about Andrea...

"I am a stay-at-home mom to 3 wonderful boys who keep me on my toes.  I was a grade school teacher up until I became a mom.  I missed teaching terribly, but I loved and still love being able to stay home with my kids.  My awesome husband and I have been married for nearly 14 years.  I have always loved art and drawing.  My Aunt was an artist.  She is disabled, born with little hands, arms and legs, but learned to paint and painted beautiful oil paintings.  As a child, we would always draw and paint together, which is where my love for art has come from.  I got started painting shoes about a year and a half ago.  I had ordered a shirt with an appliqué from a friend who embroiders and sews. I was lamenting how I wished I could find something to do with my art for a business in my spare time.  I mentioned shoes and it blossomed from there.  The funny thing is, I painted a couple pairs of shoes for my friends' birthdays when we were in high school.  I never would have thought I would do it like I'm doing now.  I paint the shoes in my spare time.  I have elderly parents with health problems, and this "job" allows me to be available and of help whenever necessary.  It is relaxing to me, but also fun!  I really enjoy coming up with new ideas and trying new things.  I enjoy seeing my customers in the shoes.  I especially enjoy the few times I get to see their faces when they see the shoes for the first time."

Andrea was so very generous to send the girls a pair of shoes from her collection.


First of all, they are a high quality shoe - so, that's always a good thing.  Secondly, could you even find a more adorable shoe?  I mean, those owls??  I die!

Andrea and I decided on a red, white and blue theme for the 4th of July and Alexa Lilli and I could not have been more pleased with how they turned out.  Andrea has such an amazing talent!
Alexa wears the shoes now, but Lilli is stretching her feet every day because she can't wait until it's her turn to wear them.  Needless to say, the girls will get maximum use of their MonkeyMou shoes.



Looking for a special pair of shoes to accommodate that adorable outfit?  Does your son or daughter play on sports team that would look super cute all paired in the 'game day' shoes?  How about you, looking for something unique to add to your wardrobe?  Andrea is uber talented and is ready to create that special pair of shoes just for you.
